    Great Vacuum but buy it from lows its cheaper, July 7, 2013

    This review is from: Dewalt DCV580 18/20V MAX Cordless Wet-Dry Vacuum (Tools & Home Improvement)
    I picked up this vacuum to use around the house I hate plugging up things and dealing with wires so anytime I can cut the wire I am all for it. So far I love it. The connivence of using the 18 volt batteries (which I have about 6-8 of them) and the newer 20 volt lithium ion (I only have 2 of them) batteries makes it a great companion to my garage. I haven’t tested it in any wet situations so I can’t say how durable it is or how well it works for water but as a dry shop vac I think it is great. Don’t buy it from amazon Lowes has it for 89.99 which is a much better deal then they have it on here for.

    Pros
    -Cordless (great for stairs, cars or any where a outlet isn’t close by)
    -Has comparable power to my other wet/dry shop vacs
    -Uses both 18 volt and 20 volt batteries
    -Has built in storage for the hose and accessories (I always misplace the accessories so having them attached is a huge plus for me)
    -Can be uses as a blower (not as powerful as some but works in a pinch to clean off miter saw or table saw before putting them up)

    Cons
    -Battery life could be a little better when using the 20 volt batteries
    -When the battery starts dying it starts losing suction power but not sure I would call that a con as it should be expected with any battery powered item.
    -Kind of bulky compared to the other battery powered dewalt vacuums

    Also the manual says you can order dust extraction adaptor and use it as a dust collector for other tools which I look forward to trying out and I will update my review with how it works
    I have tried all of my batteries and I would say the best performance in my opinion is with the 18 volt xrp batteries. They seems to have more power then the regular 18 volt batteries and last longer then the 20 volt. Maybe my regular 18 volt batteries are just toward the end of there life but seems to even be a noticeable difference in power from them and the xrp or 20 volt batteries.

    - the cord is history, January 8, 2014
    By 
    charles j ewart (honolulu, hi United States) –

    This review is from: Dewalt DCV580 18/20V MAX Cordless Wet-Dry Vacuum (Tools & Home Improvement)
    I picked up this unit at lowes when it first came out. I was going to wait for the one with the cord (DCV581H) but the lure of cord-free vacuuming was impossible to resist. I had never used a dewalt cordless vac before and did not know what to expect. It was just as good as my little HD brand shop vac but I no longer had to tote the extension cord and search for outlets. After a month, my little vac had been in houses, apartments, cars, crawlspaces, attics and even on the roof of a 2 story house. It sucked up concrete powder, rocks, staples, cat litter, sawdust, wire, broken bricks, bugs, mold, dirt, sand and even the water in a toilet.

    My observations :

    The bin is not that big and it will fall off if the handles are knocked around.
    The dust inlet has a sharp turn where the hose attaches to the vacuum body -this gets blocked by big stuff like wood chips.
    The hose is very flexible and seems much better than on the cheaper store brand vacuums.
    The attachments store on the side and in the handle. I was completely amazed by this.
    The battery (20v) slides in with the battery gauge facing down. This makes checking the battery level require removing the battery.
    The filter is solid and cleans easily.
    Drywall dust will clog the filter quickly.
    The wide attachment falls off the hose easily.
    The hose is not long enough to reach a drill held at my shoulder height if the unit is on the floor. (I’m 6’5″) I would like a shoulder strap for this because drilling holes in concrete walls is very messy without a vacuum.
    It lasts over 15 minutes with a 3ah 20v battery.
    It is as loud as a shop vac. I usually warn my clients before using it inside.
    The air outlet (blower) is not that useful as a blower. It might help dry dishes while you go deaf. It does, however, shoot air out that can cause the stuff you are vacuuming to fly all over. I have learned to be careful where I point it.

    I found that having this unit instead of a corded vacuum saved me more time and hassle than any other cordless tool that I have. It comes with me everyday.

    Didn’t realize that a battery was needed. My own fault for not reading all the information. So… after another $130.00 for a battery and charger, it’s up and running.
